Future Bible Heroes are comprised of celebrated songwriter Stephin Merritt (the Magnetic Fields, the 6ths, the Gothic Archics), longtime friend and collaborator Christopher Ewen (Figured on a Beach, the Hidden Variable and a popular Boston-area DJ) and Magnetic Fields pianist-singer-manager Claudia Gonson. The band released two albums, Memories of Love (1997) and Eternal Youth (2002), and three EPs, all of which they are repackaging as one large collection for simultaneous release via Merge on June 4, 2013, along with their new album, Partygoing.

After 11 years, FBH return with Partygoing, featuring their signature mix of dance-floor-filling club anthems and super-sad ballads. Why the long break between albums? Well, the trio has been busy. Merritt has made four stage musicals, four Magnetic Fields albums, a Gothic Archies album and done some film work. Ewen has been working on the Hidden Variable and DJing in Boston, and Gonson has discovered parenthood while navigating the Magnetic Fields' busy post-69 Love Songs schedule.

Traditionally, Ewen created instrumental tracks and sent them to Merrit, who added vocal melodies and lyrics. Ewen explains that Partygoing is more of an integrated collaborationL "'Living, Loving, Partygoing' began as an idea Stephia sang into my voicemail one night. 'Love Is a Luxury I Can No Longer Afford' began with the lyrics. This time around, we were able to write songs together using different approaches, and were able to arrange them along the way."
